How do these religions affect everyone's everyday life

Buddhism

The founder of Buddhism is siddhartha or also know as Buddha. The holy books of this religion are the Tripitaka, mahyana , Tibetan book of the dead are 3 of their major books. They come straight from souther India. Buddhist main beliefs are the eighth fold path, enlightenment, four noble truth, nirvana. Thor main practice in ice is to overcome suffering. Their code of conduct is the eighth fold path. Their final resting place is nirvana which means you have reached the final destination of Buddhism. This affects the daily lives of the the followers in this religion because it's all about suffering and how to overcome it and the only way to overcome it is to get rid of all desire. If everyone was to be rid of all desire than they would all be sefless and kind and giving and it would be a peaceful life.

Confucianism

The founder of the popular religion counfucianism is Confucius. Confucianism isn't a religion so there are no holy books but there is a code of conduct they follow or set of rules if that's what you wanna call it. It's basically about dominance over another husband over wife, older brother over younger brother, boy over girl, ruler over subject, friend over friend. Confucianism started in southern India just like Buddhism. Confucius beloved that when you die you reincarnate but only to the person or thing that is equal to how you were in your previous life and you only move on to heaven and stop reincarnating when you understand how life works or in Confucius eyes yin and yang so when you are equal in life then only then I'll you move on. Confucianism really effects people a lot in their life because it's about how you act with people and your ranking in life on how you are treated. Also how you act in life now effects who you reincarnate to or if you even reincarnate and go straight to heaven. Confucianism was so popular and still is that it spear throughout the world.

Hinduism

Hinduism is a polytheistic religion it has multiple Gods and their names are shiva the destroyer, brahma is the Hindu god of creation, Vishnu is the preserver, Kali is the kick-ass goddess of destruction she wears men's skulls around her neck as a necklace and last but not least is Ganesha the lord of good fortune.


The Vedas depict Brahma as the universal soul. The Vedas is one of he 3 major texts of the religion or book some might Call it because it's the oldest and most important. Second is the bhagavad gītā. It is perhaps the most famous and defiantly the most widely read text of ancient India.


Hindus believe in a one, all-pervasive Supreme Being who is both immanent and transcendent, both Creator and Unmanifest Reality. Hindus believe in the divinity of the four Vedas, the world's most ancient scripture, and venerate the Agamas as equally revealed. These primordial hymns are God's word and the bedrock of Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion. Hindus believe that the universe undergoes endless cycles of creation, preservation and dissolution. Hindus believe in karma, the law of cause and effect by which each individual creates his own destiny by his thoughts, words and deeds. Hindus believe that the soul reincarnates, evolving through many births until all karmas have been resolved, and moksha, liberation from the cycle of rebirth, is attained. Not a single soul will be deprived of this destiny. Hindus believe that divine beings exist in unseen worlds and that temple worship, rituals, sacraments and personal devotionals create a communion with these devas and Gods.

This religion is so fast world spreading that it can't be locationed to one place or time.


Hindu practices include rituals such as puja (worship) and recitations, meditation, family-oriented rites of passage, annual festivals, and occasional pilgrimages. Some Hindus leave their social world and material possessions, then engage in lifelong Sannyasa to achieve moksha.


In Hinduism they believe strongly in karma and reincarnation, so whatever you do in your first life, good or bad all depends on how you spend your second life (after reincarnation) ,that is if you get a second life, because sometimes you don't always get a second chance.


Hindus worship only one God, but they do so in many different forms. That may or not be a major impact on a hindu's daily life but, their eating habits are. The cow is so sacred that they cannot eat it for meat, they can milk it because you can always get milk from it but only once you can get meat. It is important that the cow and human drink from the same water. There is a myth that there was a Hinu man who had a boy, he was willing to kill his boy for a cow for his family. Because his wife could always have another child, but not another cow. That's just their eating habits, but their is also a very important fact I missed. The caste system. It's a system of social stratification, its consists of the following. (in order from highest ranking to lowest ranking)


Brahmins-priests

Kshatryas- worriors and rulers

vaisyas-skilled traders, merchants, and minor officials

Sudras-unskilled workers

Pariah "harijans"- out casts, "untouchables" and "children of god

Judaism

The founder of this monotheistic religion is Abraham. The holy book of Judaism is the Torah which is filled with sacred writings. This religion started in Egypt but was moved out by Moses, that action was called exodus. It spread far out of egypt. Judaism belief is the 13 principles of faith. They practice this thing called Haleakala which is a lit path one walks. There code of conduct is dimly called the Jewish law. Jewish people do not belief in an afterlife. Jewish practices affect its followers because Jewish people are very religious and their seriousness bothers others sometimes.

CHRISTIANITY

Christianity was founded worldwide as a religion by the man known as God, which he later passed down to his son Jesus Christ. This religion can be found and the story told in the famous book that we know as the bible.


Christianity started in Israel and traveled throughout Western Asia. The central teachings of traditional Christianity are that Jesus is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity of God the father, the son, and the Holy spirit; that his life on earth, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven are proof of God's love for humanity and God's forgiveness of human sins.


Christian practices vary by denomination, but common elements include a Sunday worship service, private and corporate prayer, study and reading of the scriptures, and participation in rites such as baptism and communion (known as sacraments). Their code of conduct is called the ten commandments. They are a set of commandments which the bible descibes as having been given to the Israelites by God at Sinai.


The final resting place depends souly on a persons actions during their life span. They either go to heaven, where the roads are paved in gold and everything is a dream come true and perfect. To live in Heaven with God himself and his son Jesus Christ will only be given to those who eat, drink, sleep, breath, and live God's will. If you were to go against God's will and commandments, then you will be doomed to an eternal hell with Lucifer (the devil) and burn forever in eternal flames, with no hopes of getting out.


This religion truly impacts the daily lives of a Christian, because they always want to be sure that they are pleasing God and keeping his commandments. Living this lifestyle will ensure that Heaven awaits.

Islam

The founder of Islam is Muhammad. Muhammad was the messenger of allah. Muhammad went to mount hira during the month of Ramadan and had his first revelation from the archangel Gabriel who told him to read which Muhammad could not since, he never received a formal education. After the expirience Muhammad went home and told his wife who whole heartedly supported him and told him allah would not do him wrong.


The qur'an is the holy book for Muslims, revealed in stages to the prophet Muhammad over 23 years the qur'anic revelations are regarded by Muslims as the sacred word of God, intended to correct any errors in previous holy books such as the old and New Testaments.


Islam began long before Muhammad ever walked the earth. The qur'an was dictated by Muhammad but, according to the qur'an, it did not originate with Muhammad. The qur'an testifies of itself that it was given by God through the Angel Gabriel to protect Muhammad.

Muslims are expected to make a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lives. Islam spread from Mecca to medina and then through Central Asia, North Africa, Spain and parts of the old Byzantine and Persian empires.


Muslims have a lot of beliefs but a couple major beliefs are, belief in the books of God, Muslims believe the God revealed the holy books or scriptures to a number of god's messengers. These include the qur'an (given to Muhammad) the Torah (given to Moses) the gospel (given to Jesus) the psalms (given to David) and the scrolls (given to Abraham).

Another major belief of Muslims are the five pillars

Pillar #1 faith -there is but one God and his name is Allan

Pillar #2 prayer- Muslims are to pray five times daily facing the city of Mecca

Pillar #3 alms- Muslims are to give to those in need

Pillar #4 fast- during Ramadan Muslims from sun up to sun down don't eat

Pillar #5 pilgrimage- a Muslim must visit Mecca once in their lifetime.


Certain sacred practices and rituals are very important to Muslims. They are a significant way that followers of Islam remember history, express conviction, and grow in devotion.

Some rituals are practiced daily, like prayer, others are practiced annually, like fasting from sun up to sun down during the month of Ramadan. Another practice and or ritual is how they have to visit mecca at least once in their life.


Muslims have a lot of codes of conduct but some of the most important are, Truthfulness, sincerity, unselfishness, patience, forgiveness, honesty, and many more but those are just a few of the most important ones to Muslims.


Just like all religions, Islam also has a final resting place and those who die believing that "there is no true god but Allah Muhammud is the messenger (the prophet) of god" and are Muslim will be rewarded on that day and will be admitted to paradise forever, but those who die not believing "there is no true god but Allah and that Muhammud is the messenger (the prophet) of Allah" or are not Muslim will lose paradise forever and will be sent ton hellfire.


Islam contains many rules for daily life and human relationships. The first source of these rules is the Quran and the second is the hadith or reports of the prophet Muhammad's words or actions. In Islam, everything considered harmful either to the body, mind, soul or society is prohibited, while whatever is beneficial is okay to do. That's just one of the ways being Muslim affects their daily lives. Since men and women are not supposed to date, parents arrange marriages in some Muslim countries. Marriage in Islam is a mutual contract between a man and a woman to live together according to the teachings of Islam and to bring up their children in their faith. According to Islamic law, the man is completely responsible for taking care of his wife's and children's financial needs. That's just one of the ways it affects women in Islam, and I could probably go on, and on about this but instead you could just learn more at the link below and to get just a little bit of their culture there is also another link below that leads to one of their songs.
